Songs of the Sea !!!!!

What a spectacular show......and not just for the kids in the audience, but for everyone!!

We went on Friday night and as we have a Sentosa Island Pass the cost was only $4.00........no-where can you be entertained like this for $4.00 and that is Sing dollars!!!! If you don't have a Sentosa Island Pass, then the cost is a whopping $6.00. In Australian dollar terms that would be around $5.50.

Photographically the photos are not of any quality, they are here purely to give you an idea of what it was about....and even then, it really is nothing as spectacular as it was in "real life":



Songs of the Sea is a multi-sensory spectacular with dramatic effects, engaging music, pyrotechnics and a live cast..

Songs of the Sea is a stellar combination of technology, imaging and live characters. Lights, lasers, fire effects and water jets create a stunning visual feast together with striking computer images projected on giant water screens. The attraction is unique because there are no barriers between the show and the natural elements.

The centerpiece of the show is a specially built 120m long kelong (fishing village in Malay) structure. The structure itself is a work of art wherein it truly resembles original Asian fishing village huts. Using modern inflammable materials, it is built to withstand roughest of weather conditions including strong winds, waves and high tides.

The different technological elements of Songs of the Sea that make it a not-to-be-missed extravaganza include a 40m high giant water screen flanked by two slightly smaller water screens, 69 water jets reaching as high as 40m, flames leaping up to 20m and lasers using the latest diode technology. The most remarkable logistics aspect of the show, however, is the daily display of pyrotechnics. The attraction runs two shows every night, 365 days a year. The open-air styled viewing gallery can comfortably seat 2,500 visitors. Each show lasts 25 minutes.

You'll enjoy the Gemini. It's small enough to be a little more intimate and the service is a little more personal than on larger ships. I've done the cruise you are taking and had a wonderful time. If you get a chance to go to Koh Pod during the Krabi shore excursions I can thoroughly recommend it.
